Program Description: Print Competition 101 - The Whys and Hows of Print Competition

This program is for people who are beginning print competition and for those who are too scared to try print competition as well as those who want to know about changes and what the judges are thinking as they judge your images. First we will delve into the whys of entering. Then we will discuss the flow chart for your images and why you should take advantage of multiple judgings. We will cover the 12 elements of a Merit Image. What are those judges looking for? We will look at some competition images from raw prints to loan collection images. Information on print presentation will be included. We will talk about titles and why they matter and some of the terms associated with print competition that we sometimes take for granted that people know. Questions will be welcomed at the end. It is my sincere hope that everyone will leave feeling a little more confident about entering print competition which will in turn lead to their growth as a photographer and artist.
